History

In the ninth and 10th centuries, close to the Sahara Desert in West Africa, some residents moved to Grain Coast (now Liberia). In the 15th century, the Portuguese came and started the slave trade, followed by the Netherlands, Britain, France, Germany and other settlers. In December 1821, the establishment of African-American immigrants in this area was named Liberia. Liberia was established in 1858 as a federal state from the "American Colonization Society." On July 26, 1947, there was a declaration of independence and the Republic of Liberia was established.
